List of WotLK Tanking Items

Postby Azmodal » Tue Nov 04, 2008 7:55 am

Greetings everyone! I've been coming to these boards for about a year now, but this'll be my first post. Anywho, I compiled a list of (what I think) the best rares (and some epics) you can/should gather before level 80 raiding.

Items with an asterisk (*) in front of them notate preferable items to get, and question marks indicate that I couldn't find the info yet, and I will continue to update as new information is gathered.

Hope this helps anyone looking to gear up asap to get back to raiding, and any questions/comments are greatly appreciated!

Edit: Ack, didn't even realize Zamach hada post including most of this stuff already! Oh well, this serves more as a "gear up to raiding" rather than a list of blues/purples, including raid gear. Sorry for the extra info, guys :(

Also, I'm in the process of cleaning this up a bit, to make it a bit easier to traverse and read.

I think we had a list somewhere, but it doesn't hurt to have another PoV.

Ok, its a bit cleaner now, and I hope at least someone gets some use out of it, as a spent a bit of time on it. I know Zamach's post is more comprehensive than this, but I hope people may just look at mine as a stepping stone on the way to his!

Thanks for reading, guys! I'll keep the info as up to date as possible!

Yeah, I'm just not quite sure when I'll learn!

Ok, and this seems really crazed-fanboy of me, but who else out there can't stop looking at all the sexy blue/purple armor/weapons/trinkets/anything on WoWhead? I've literally been comparing stats and pictures and drop rates for like 10 hours now.

I don't think I should be this excited about numbers and formulas.

Should I?
